    Trummelbach Falls

    September 12, 2017 in Switzerland

    Today we visited the fantastic Trummelbach Falls near Lauterbrunnen. The Falls are in the Valley of the 72 Falls. They are the world's only glacial falls accessible underground by lift, pathways & tunnels. Incredible! And so is the noise as the water roars through at a flow of 3 cubic metres a second! We took the lift up through the mountain and then walk down. (Many, many, many steps!) Another amazing day in the Swiss Alps.Read more

    Day 0 & 1: Drive to sunlight = Suisse

    October 9, 2017 in Switzerland

    It is time for a well deserved holiday, the rain drove us away, literally ;-) We only had reserved 2 weeks off from work. We had a good plan and nothing booked or fixed so we could do whatever we wanted. We drove off around 3PM on the Monday after packing that same day. We managed to get to Oberkirch in Schwarzwald in Germany, we booked a nice accommodation that was in a managable distance. The holiday was started and we were already feeling healthier and much better than the day before.
    So the next day after a nice German breakfast we tried to walk a nice route in the Schwarzwald, After 15minutes of walking in the fog and when rain started we said that this wasn't what we had in mind. We moved back straight away and did not stop until we had blue skies and a nice scenery. Lauterbrunnen. It is almost like a fairytale, mountains rising up straight from the ground and here and there waterfalls came falling down the edges. We planted our stuff in a hostel like accomodation and moved out to do some exercise and see the area. This ended up in a 17km long hike up and down the whole mountain (well we took the train to skip the boring part). Walking up was the heaviest so we managed to get to the top before 5PM, the sun was still shining but we needed to get back since we expected it to be dark around 7:30PM. The sun however did off course not go down on the horizon it went down behind the highest mountain so after 30minutes it was already cooling off and within the hour it was a whole lot darker. The journey down should have taken us 2,5 hours but we walked slower than planned. Especially when we walked through the woods, it took us a whole hour longer (the sun was gone and it became pitch black on some parts) it was a little to much excitement after the long day but we managed to get to Wengen around 20:45 to find a place that we could finally regain energy with a lovely meal ;-) we took a late train back down to Lauterbrunnen and a wonderfull long day and the story that comes with it :D.

    July 4 in Switzerland

    today we got up at 6am to walk to the tram station to take us up to the top of Europe...Jungfrau mt. the views were amazing. and the way the train worked was pretty kool. works almost like a sprocket. the trip took about an hour. we got to the top and started to wander around, in to the ice caves, out to different lookouts.... it was freezing. i was wearing 2 pairs of pants, 3 layers of shirts, a jacket, snow gloves and a beanie and my hood. however when they opened up the outside area to walk around the sun was shining and it was fairly warm. the views from the top of this mountain were pretty amazing. and we got to see how lindt chocolate is made too, and they gave us 2 free samples, but the guy at the counter was aussie and he gave us like 10 truffles... score! we headed back down the mountain after lunch and walked to a waterfall near hour camp. made dinner at the campsite and spent the rest of our evening planning out the rest of our tripRead more

    Day 47: Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland

    August 6, 2017 in Switzerland

    Today it rained, rained and rained, so we went to a cafe to figure out our game plan for the day and take advantage of the Swiss chocolate (or at least I did). Zoe is all about the cappuccinos. She actually made me laugh right when I was taking a picture as she made fun of me for being so excited about my hot chocolate and cake. The blueberry cake was exactly like how my grandmother used to make it! And the bathrooms had black toilet paper. She would have loved Switzerland. <3

    After our snacks, we took on the walk to Trummelbach Falls. It had stopped raining so we were confident that we could do the 40 minute walk. It starting pouring on us half way through and we got soaked, but we heard that the Falls were a good activity for a rainy day (the falls are inside a cave). Turns out, it's only inside for a small portion so we still got rained on, but the falls were really cool. It drains from the three largest Alps in the area and the current is so strong. We met a nice lady from Wisconsin who got lost on the walk there so we walked all together and she was nice enough to take pictures for us.

    After the falls, we took the bus back as it was pouring and we were so excited to shower. Once again, one of the best showers of this trip. We then made dinner, chicken with zucchini, mushrooms and pesto pasta. It turned out really good and we have leftovers for our lunch tomorrow. We also met two girls from Oregon who we will be meeting up with in Munich and a nice couple from Washington. Seems like everyone we talk to is heading to Munich from here so we seem to be heading in the right direction. :)
